Tansi sewer district a reality

At the conclusion of a state-mandated public hearing on the creation of a public sewer district for the Lake Tansi Village area County Mayor Brock Hill told the crowd that he was leaning toward approving the system's creation.

"As it stands now, I am inclined to approve the utility district," Hill said. "But, there are some concerns that need to be addressed first and we will be busy reviewing your questions before that decision is made."

Friday those questions must have been answered because before Hill left town for Washington, D.C. and county business, he signed the order creating the Tansi Sewer Utility District.

According to reports, Hill has also appointed the three-member board but the names of those appointees were not available. The Secretary of State must approve the creation, which is expected to be a routine action, and the board is tentatively scheduled to hold its first meeting March 11 at which time, among other things, a general manager will be appointed.

An estimated 180 people filled the Thunderbird Recreation Hall Thursday night to obtain first-hand information, ask questions and voice opinions about establishing a utility district that will provide sewer services for the community.

Chuck Burgess of Environmental and Civil Engineering Services explained that the proposed sewer district would be developed in three stages with stage one taking over the private Tansi Wastewater Management Inc. operation that presently serves POA amenities.

Phase II would be Hiawatha East and West, a work already under way with the private company doing the infrastructure and paying a hookup fee of around $190,000 to the district.

Phase III would be residential areas done logistically as allowed with special emphasis on the older sections where higher septic system failure rates exist.

A note of interest to some is that the treated product will be of such standard that it will meet standards to be used to water the golf course.
